Gotta say, I like his answer ^^^^^^

Sorry to say, any full size truck is not gonna be a gas sipper. I have about 3500 on my truck, and have averaged about 18 MPG combined. On a road trip to Portland (about 140 miles) I made an effort to drive very conservatively, and saw 22 mpg.

Put in Royal Purple oil, it helped my Ram get about 3 more mpg on the highway and 1.5 more in the city. Cold air package and a catback system will also help
